Following on, Shardashram yet again succumbed to Sai (6 for 16) and were dismissed for 98. Leg-spinner Neil Patade claimed 3 for 28 as the Kandivli side won by an innings and 20 runs.
Adhesive Abbas shines

The No. 4 batsman remained not out as his side ended the game with 149 for 9. Abbas, who put on a vital 45-run partnership with Gaurav Bathena, batted for almost 30 overs from one end.
Earlier, his spin bowling claimed three IES wickets. IES left-arm spinner Ayush Zimare’s 6-69 went in vain.
